Any info on Tete from Shaktar Ed. Heard that he was released on a free and signed by Lyon but also read that it was only for 6 months and he's a free agent again.

Would be a fantastic signing imo.


{Ed002's Note - Not involving Everton and he has not been released.}



03 Jun 2022 07:56:18
Apparently we've enquired about former Arsenal graduate and current Montpellier forward Mavididi.




31 Jan 2022 15:24:50
Dele Alli done deal! . Happy with that personally. If any 1 can sort him out it's Lampard.


1.) 31 Jan 2022 15:47:41
Agree to an extent. But unsure how VDB and Deli fit in the same team and don't know that we can afford luxury substitutes right now.

Time will tell, at least we are making moves for attacking players. Sometimes I think out defense suffer most because they get a lot of pressure out on them from a lack of creativity in the middle.

2.) 31 Jan 2022 15:57:08
Is this actually done for Dele?
I have seen varying reports and one guy tweeting that it’s a free transfer with a £10m fee after 20 games
Just can’t see Levy agreeing to such a deal.

3.) 31 Jan 2022 15:59:40
VDB to replace gomes/ Davies. Alli to replace siggurdson/ James. At least that’s how I see it. VDB is only here untill the end of the season as well. Also Delph and possibly Gbamin leaving in the summer.

4.) 31 Jan 2022 16:03:33
Dele can only play the 10 role he is not a grafting midfield player. If Dele drops the attitude, silly haircuts and made to measure baggy shorts maybe just maybe….

5.) 31 Jan 2022 16:04:27
Sky calling it a "creatively structured deal". I think he's still got a lot to offer.

6.) 31 Jan 2022 16:11:27
Yep Ali a 10 and Beek with Decoure Alan. Big choices up front, Gordon, Gray, DCL, Richarlison.

7.) 31 Jan 2022 16:26:15
Deli is a 10 and we are desperate for that. I think he will do fine for us. All of a sudden today feels pretty good. 1 more would be fantastic.

8.) 31 Jan 2022 16:40:31
The lad plays of knock ons and flicks from the cf. dcl would be suited to that he tries but no one is there. Now potentially someone will be there to get the second ball and take those chances.

9.) 31 Jan 2022 16:42:34
Agree Brownshoes, we have been desperate for a good number 10 and if this lad does find his form he scores goals as well. Still only 25 so no brainer.

10.) 31 Jan 2022 16:43:14
Fabrizio saying it’s a done deal.

11.) 31 Jan 2022 16:45:24
Dele Alli creative deal worth up to £40m
Structure is based on performances and achievements.

12.) 31 Jan 2022 17:06:28
He is looking for goals from midfield I guess which have been missing.

13.) 31 Jan 2022 17:20:20
Reckon it could be signing of the window if comes off and is the creative deal that's being reported.

On his day he is unplayable, admittedly not had his day for a while but if frank can get him playing to the level he is capable of we've done really well.

Also it's actually a position we need which is refreshing.

This could be turning into a positive day for us evertonians.

{Ed0666's Note - Signing of the window? Unplayable? Have you signed Salah or Haaland? No you’ve signed Deli Ali. I know you have to spin some positivity on purchases but let’s not get bogged down in hyperbole mate.

14.) 31 Jan 2022 17:32:53
May have got a little carried away, but when we've had agent Rafa trying to take us down got to look at positives.

So ed066 who do you reckon is signing of the window?

Bearing in mind that haaland or salah haven't actually gone anywhere this window.

If we can get alli back to his best then it's definitely a really good signing. Big if I know as not been great recently, however if we can get him back to his best then a free transfer with fee depending on performances is probably one of the better signings of this window.

{Ed0666's Note - I think the Brazilian midfielder that Newcastle have signed and the guy City have picked up from River Plate will be resounding successes. Oh and I predict Philips will be a revelation at Bournemouth.

15.) 31 Jan 2022 17:33:18
Hahaha I’m creased reading this.

16.) 31 Jan 2022 17:33:33
Breath in deeply Ed0666, you can try and suck a bit more of our positivity out of us ???.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m glad you crazy kids have something to be happy about good for you. Lampard, Donny & Deli. They say all good things come in 3’s…I suppose your still waiting for yours ?

17.) 31 Jan 2022 17:44:30
Haha yea easy to get carried away on deadline day isn't it Ed! Won't be that long before Salah is signing of the window for someone though given that he keeps jibbing off signing a new contract with Liverpool will it!

{Ed0666's Note - and if he does sign for a new club good luck to them mate they’ll definitely be getting the signing of the window.

18.) 31 Jan 2022 17:46:20
Chance of Jovic onloan yet, overseas loans permitted alongside 2 domestic loans.

19.) 31 Jan 2022 18:37:46
Iwobi 2.0? Hope not!

20.) 31 Jan 2022 19:06:09
ed666 if you dislike everton so much why do you commnt on our posts on our site, all i see from you is negativity, this is a EVERTON fan page.

{Ed0666's Note - it’s an Everton Banter page and I’m having a laugh at your expense it’s certainly not hate. Do you not take the piss out of other teams fans? Why so sensitive? You need to relax and appreciate that football is cycle based and you will have peaks and troughs. Admittedly your troughs last longer than most but you see where I’m going.

21.) 31 Jan 2022 19:58:26
Actually ED0666, I don't extract from other teams fans in fact I don't give a monkeys about other Teams, except one's I support of course. Meadowbank Thistle (Livingston) , Standard Liege and Everton.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m truly shocked!

22.) 31 Jan 2022 21:08:06
F#$% Meadowbank thistle ?? relax I'm joking ?.

23.) 31 Jan 2022 23:55:44
Don't know why, took a liking as a kid (Meadowbank) and Liege was my home for a while.



31 Jan 2022 14:16:44
Luka Jovic on loan. Would bloody love that. Carlo does owe us a favour as well haha.


{Ed025's Note - now that would be a signing sir loin..

1.) 31 Jan 2022 17:47:13
Could send Dunc over as coach, to sweeten the deal.



27 Jan 2022 18:57:51
Ruben Loftus cheek or dele Alli on loan? . Honestly not sure who I'd go with tbh. Probably Alli as if we could get any sorta form outta him his goals would definitely come in handy.


1.) 27 Jan 2022 20:26:57
RLC all day long.

2.) 27 Jan 2022 21:24:24
Shame we used up a loan on El Ghazi or we could have tried for both.

3.) 28 Jan 2022 10:09:43
Another great bit of business by the Everton management getting a player on loan in a position we don't really need cover for.

Soon to be 34yr old Lewandowski going to Barcelona for 55mil. Does make you question letting Richy go for the same money considering he's so much younger.


1.) 29 Jun 2022 08:45:26
Lewandowski guarantees at least 30 goals a season, Richarlison might get 10, i love richy but there is no comparing the two. Lewandowski is an elite level finisher, regardless of age.

2.) 29 Jun 2022 09:24:49
There’s a good reason Lewandowski is worth that much. Simply can’t compare Richy to him. Like comparing Iwobi to Messi.

3.) 29 Jun 2022 09:53:52
Have to agree. Comparing Richarlison to Lewandowski is like comparing Andre Gomes to KDB.

4.) 29 Jun 2022 10:02:05
Lewandowski gets 30 a season as his team is always on the front foot he plays in a better team which creates lots more chances for him to score. I Think if Richie was in a better team with better players he would score far more goals. Everton are usually backs against the wall defending and let’s face it we don’t have any players who give the strikers any service some matches we where lucky to have one shot on target. If lewandowski was playing for Everton he would struggle to score over 10 goals a season. Richie is a brilliant player who try’s his heart out every match he deserves to play with better players. He is by far the best player we have I wish we had more players like him with his attitude he is a fighter a winner.

5.) 29 Jun 2022 11:06:18
Calvert Lewin scored 16 in a season 20 - 21 playing for us and you think Lewandowski would struggle to get 10. Wow.

6.) 29 Jun 2022 11:52:01
That’s how bad we are at the min. If you look at the goal scoring chances created last season by our midfield it’s very low . Some matches there was nothing apart from a big hoof down the pitch by Pickford and the skrikers have no chance with that crap. All your doing when you hoof it is giving the ball back to the other team. It’s useless.

7.) 29 Jun 2022 12:20:50
I loved the comparing iwobi with Messi. Like Messi is on iwobis level ??.

8.) 29 Jun 2022 12:51:20
Lewandowski would only score ten for us? He would score that many in a couple of games! He's the kind of player that would score plenty in any team, not as if he has played for top teams from the start of his career and he scored plenty when he broke through.
Love it Woburn ? from now on, Messi should be known as the Argentine Iwobi ?.

9.) 29 Jun 2022 18:33:19
You need to make chances for your striker to score how could anyone score goals in a team that doesn’t create chances that’s impossible. Did we not go 8hrs of football away from home without a shot on target. No1 could score 20 a season in our team at the min because we don’t create enough chances to get that many. Our midfield is crap.

{Ed025's Note - fair point con..

10.) 29 Jun 2022 19:02:30
Cheers mate first time anyone on here has gave me a positive comment lol first time for everything I suppose.

{Ed025's Note - it’s healthy for posters to have different views con mate.

11.) 29 Jun 2022 19:58:49
I find myself agreeing with a lot you write con81!

12.) 29 Jun 2022 20:47:39
Happy days this must be my lucky day ?. Did not see that coming I was getting treated like I was in some sort of far right movement on here lol.

13.) 29 Jun 2022 22:42:24
I’d say Iwobi was a messy footballer… fair comparison for me.

14.) 29 Jun 2022 23:18:34
I agree with that Con you do need to make chances for the strikers
What I don’t agree with is the continual bashing before a ball has been kicked for the new season
Different approaches different opinions
You do you though ofherwise life is boring.

15.) 30 Jun 2022 02:30:57
I definitely am not comparing him to Lewandowski in terms of quality haha. Saying that though he’s almost 34! 1 bad injury and his career is over. Richy is so important to us but I guess it’s indicative of the absolute shambolic manner the club has been ran in that we’re having to sell for a low fee.

16.) 30 Jun 2022 05:54:04
So we are trying to control FFP and start off the next 3 years with Lewendowski's wages?



26 Jun 2022 08:34:10
Seen the reports that we will loan Branthwaite out. Dunno if I agree with that tbh unless we're going to keep Mina and keane which atm looks unlikely we will keep both.


1.) 26 Jun 2022 09:12:06
I find it frustrating that we’re looking at loaning him out, he’s probably our best centreback when you compare him to Mina and Keane. To me makes no sense. Would much rather pair him up with Tarkowski so he can develop.

2.) 26 Jun 2022 09:36:33
I would keep him myself but if he is loaned out it would have to be to a prem club or a higher team in Europe like PSV or someone where he will get higher standard of football.

3.) 26 Jun 2022 11:01:17
Doesn’t make sense to me, why have Holgate and Keane at the club ahead of him, when he’s clearly going to be better than both.

4.) 26 Jun 2022 11:21:14
If you watch the games he has played in I do get the sense that he is not yet quite ready
for the premier league. This is not to say he is worse than Keane or Holgate as many times they do not look ready for the premier league but you assume that Frank will start with
Tarkowski and Godfrey or Mina and Holgate as back up when is he going to play. He might as well get experience elsewhere.

5.) 26 Jun 2022 13:29:48
I think a year out player regular football will do him and us (following season) the world of good.

6.) 26 Jun 2022 21:57:50
Agree with gingerdan. Makes no sense. Personally I'm very fed up with what I'm reading and I hope it's paper talk or this Club have learnt f/ all. Winks for 20 million is simply atrocious business meanwhile let one of your best young players (a player who can a fill a position we are desperately lax in think holgate Keane et al) and we let him slip out the door?!?!?

I would start tarkowski with branthwaite. That is my ideal centre back partnership with Keane holgate and mina sold ASAP. Godfrey to fill in across the back 4 then need 1 more centre back.

7.) 26 Jun 2022 23:01:03
Is this the same Branthwaite everyone was slagging off for getting sent off? He’s just a kid and still needs time to develop. Would make perfect sense to loan him out.

8.) 27 Jun 2022 01:06:56
Totally agree with Woburn, the lad needs regular games rather than a start here and there and I can't see that happening with us. A loan to a decent championship team would be helpful to his development.



10 Jun 2022 15:49:51
Would love us to move for Gabby Jesus if Richarlison does leave. Obviously unlikely though but saying that if Richy or DCL are leaving. it's imperative we do it early so we can get are preferred replacements before they move elsewhere.




10 Jun 2022 05:15:14
We all want Gallagher but you just know we will end up with Barkley don't you haha. Tbh though I'd rather him over the likes of Gomes/ Davies in the midfield.


1.) 10 Jun 2022 07:28:15
I don't get the hate for Tom Davies it's almost like some fans have to hate a local player the kids been very unlucky IMO never had a manager who has stayed longer than a couple of years so never really had a set position and been asked to fill lots of different roles, is it too late for him at Everton who knows look what Frank has done to Iwobi so maybe now is the time we get to see what the kids all about but one thing I will never bad mouth that kid or say he's not good enough after all he's living our dream by playing for the club he and us love.

2.) 10 Jun 2022 08:41:36
I don’t hate him mate haha. Just don’t think he’s premier league standard. His passing range is poor, no goal scoring ability, no pace. I’d keep him as a squad player but if we want to improve he shouldn’t be a starter for me.

3.) 10 Jun 2022 08:59:19
Davies is good squad player on reasonable wages. If we can't replace him with an academy player then why get rid just to bring someone in to replace him at more cost. If we have a good academy player that could replace him then selling would be a viable option.

4.) 10 Jun 2022 10:42:57
TD has had plenty of opportunity and has played a lot of games. Last season obviously he'd have had an amazing stage due to our squad difficulties to show some of us but sadly he was injured. But let's not pretend we havnt seen enough of him the last 6 years to know he is a liability in the tackle, too slow with and without the ball and lacking any obvious ability to work make a pass, find a player or make a tackle. He is lower end championship level. Due to our financial circumstances and him not being worth much in transfer or wages, he will likely stay as a cheap plug as with JJK and Holgate. Our priority has changed and these young cheap average players are not the immediate issues to be sorted this or next window. I hope 1 of them finally kicks on but I have my doubts. Our 30 somethings who have been stealing a wage are the priority this window to get rid and replace.

5.) 10 Jun 2022 11:02:03
Davies is just not good enough, we need to move on and let players of that ilk go if we want to improve.

6.) 10 Jun 2022 11:08:22
I can't believe some fans still think davies is a player to play for this club. He has never been good he has been playing premier league football for 6+ years he has never give us anything to consider him a starter. Move this lad.

7.) 10 Jun 2022 11:08:50
Unrealistic to think we can ship all the players we think aren’t good enough out and replace them.

So clearly going to have to keep some of them

With that in mind - who out of Gomes and Davies would you keep?

Personally I’d keep Davies as he’s still young and has the potential to improve under Lampard. Gomes seems to be regressing and has 1 good game in 5.

8.) 10 Jun 2022 11:31:11
Tom Davies. Neither hated or rated.

9.) 10 Jun 2022 12:19:45
Davies gives his all for the team every game but unfortunately 'his all' isn't of the right quality for the Premiership

His reasonable wages are still £1.6 million a year, He might still be a reasonable 'squad' player but to me he's keeping academy graduates from their chance in the squad/ team. Davies has had his chance and frankly hasn't taken it

If we could move him on I think it would be best for both him and the team.

10.) 10 Jun 2022 14:46:45
Ginger Dan out of the two I would keep Davies as a squad player, I don’t think either have a long term future in the first team
Gomes is allegedly attracting interest from Mourinho so hopefully he firms that interest up with a bid though I can’t see it happening.

11.) 10 Jun 2022 15:01:16
Neither Hope both are gone next season.

12.) 10 Jun 2022 16:07:29
Come on guernsey that wasn’t an option - I imagine majority would agree with you.

The question is out of Gomes and Davies if one has to go and one has to stay which one would you want to stay?

13.) 10 Jun 2022 16:10:18
Not sure why people think our academy players would be better than Davies, but hey if their not we can slate them too.
I would be for giving the lad a go in the squad and see how he goes under Frank. Let’s face it he got Iwobi playing, and according to most on here he should have been first out the door.

14.) 10 Jun 2022 20:06:49
GB is a Tom Jones groupie.

15.) 10 Jun 2022 19:10:55
Imagine being a scouser and playing for the club you love and yet you have fans tell you your rubbish I'm actually grateful I was never good enough to play for Everton as imagine being a young lad and having people with half your ability telling you your rubbish how embarrassing.

16.) 11 Jun 2022 07:16:51
Some posters need to hold their hands up and be honest as to admit that the reason they want Tom to stay and play is purely because he is 'local' and nothing else.
His ability or lack of it comes secondary to them, whether it's a subconscious thing or deliberate, it still doesn't make up for the player's alarmingly consistent poor performances.

17.) 11 Jun 2022 09:46:44
Reason people want TD to stay is because although we all know he hasn't met the high expectations we all put on him when he made his debut as a teenager, and we all remember when playing as a 10 ran City ragged with exceptional passing and vision. Yet as with majority of youth players under Moshiri's regime they have been wasted by revolving door managers, the kid must of had 10-12 different managers/ head coaches/ caretaker managers. So who has let down who, I know I would seriously consider my options before I signed for Everton, it is hard to think of any academy graduates who have played more than TD, they seam to go elsewhere to play. I wonder why?

{Ed025's Note - its ok to have a go at the revolving door policy BB but sometimes it can be the kid, he has been a constant underperformer for most of his career and gives the ball away far too cheaply, always looks tired to me with those socks rolled down as though it was extra time even after 10 minutes, maybe hes happy to just meander along on his £1.3m a year, you never know mate..



04 Jun 2022 01:43:59
Whilst I agree that Kenny isn't good enough for the starting 11 does any1 else take it as we may finally have a sensible plan.

Low wages, he will be 2/ 3 choice and can play multiple positions. Will also allow us to spend funds elsewhere and long term I feel if we tighten the rains now and mainly look at loans, young players and freebies it will set us up for 2-3 years down the line. Just my take anyways.


1.) 04 Jun 2022 08:51:29
Personally I think if they are not good enough and Kenny has had his chances he should be released why keep a player we know is not up to standard? Because he’s cheap because he’s local?
I’d rather let him go and utilise the u23s give someone new a chance. Nothing against kenny just don’t see the point in keeping players not good enough.

2.) 04 Jun 2022 09:56:05
We have that many players out of contract within the next month, too many to replace, that one or two will be retained. Since JJK is versatile, it's no real surprise that he has been offered a new deal. Relatively cheap wage, home-grown and not over 30, he will do as back up to the first team.
Reading some of the posts on the different pages on this site, this has split the fans a bit. What we have to realise is, as sirloin says, the club is addressing it's FFP with a plan to move forward. We can't just go out and throw cash at a new RB as well as filling out positions that need strengthening like we have in the recent past. There's not going to be a quick, but expensive, fix like we have seen under FM so far.

3.) 04 Jun 2022 11:24:30
If JJK goes why does he need replacing? He doesn't. I also don't agree he is 2nd or 3rd choice. LB myko, Niels, Godfrey then Kenny. So forth choice. RB Patterson/ Coleman, holgate, Godfrey, Kenny so 5th choice.

Just 30k a week wasted. That's not even my opinion it's just facts.

4.) 04 Jun 2022 12:14:02
Absolutely Chris, why keep a player 5 managers have tried to punt on to no avail. Completely agree with everything you stated re Kenny and where he slots in!

5.) 04 Jun 2022 12:46:36
Spot on Chris.

6.) 04 Jun 2022 16:29:15
We would need to bring in another RB unless you want to rely on Seamus again? We all know he's past it so it would leave us short in that position. I suppose we could use either Godfrey or Holgate there but I'd rather have a proper RB in than using CB's. I think we would listen to any offers for Holgate too mate.

7.) 04 Jun 2022 17:28:29
If he’s deemed not good enough to start a game, I’d be keen to blood a youngster that could end up being better and will increase in value to the club.
If Frank sees something in him however, so be it.

8.) 04 Jun 2022 23:20:02
Let's be sensible here. Holgate and Godfrey are either starting or back up CBs depending on how many we sign. Kenny has done better on loan than Nkounou so far and Nkounko is more a LWB.
If we get a couple of defensive injuries we will need to buy 2 CBs or a versatile back up full back. Seems pointless to me. ay aswell keep Kenny until we can loosen our belts a bit more.

9.) 07 Jun 2022 23:18:17
We clearly have more than enough cover for the positions. Kenny has proved himself not good enough time and time again. And we would not be relying on Coleman. Patterson would be first choice Coleman back up. With less game time he'd be in better condition when he did play.
